Hats Off to Hughes Magnet Students and Crouse Employees



Part of Crouse Hospital’s mission is to promote community health. And Crouse employees demonstrated once again that they take that commitment seriously by delivering 500 hat and glove sets to the students at Hughes Magnet Elementary School. For several weeks prior to delivery day, employees donated funds to purchase the winter wear. The campaign was a huge success — $1,300 more than was needed for the hats and gloves was raised and will be used for additional wellness program at the school this year. According to Crouse Hospital Community Outreach Manager Leesa Kelley, the staff at Hughes said “that more than just giving the students this winter wear, we gave them an opportunity to understand how compassion and caring and gratitude work in this world.”

The hat and mitten donation is part of the ongoing Health is Hoppin’ at Hughes school-year long wellness program, supported by Crouse, for the school’s students, teachers, staff and families. Since 2004, Crouse Hospital has partnered with the Syracuse City School District to support health and wellness efforts. This initiative was started to further the hospital’s mission to promote community health, and allows hospital staff to share their services, experience and time for an important community programs.
